Abstract

Four new species of Pouzarella are described from the Dominican Republic and this report is the first of this genus from Hispaniola. A new variety of one of these newly described species is also described from Jamaica. Crinipellis (Pouzarella)squamifolia, previously described from Jamaica by Murrill, is also discussed and illustrated. A new record for the Dominican Republic, P. caribaea, is also reported. We now know of seven species and varieties of Pouzarella from the Greater Antillean islands in the Caribbean.
